Both locations of The Riddler (SF and NYC) have closed until further notice while we keep our team healthy and do our part to flatten the curve for COVID-19. During this time, we are committed to supporting our team, honoring their sick pay and paid time off, and paying health care for those of our employees who are on our coverage plan. Unfortunately, we have many team members who are uninsured or underinsured, and may need further assistance. In addition, 100% of our workforce, including our ownership and management team, is going on temporary administrative leave and unemployment assistance after April 4 and until we reopen. We are committed to rehiring our team when we can reopen. The Riddler Employee Assistance Program will support team members during this time in case of emergency. We have created a cross-departmental, cross-country team spanning all seniority levels (excluding owners) to determine the process for our team members to apply for aid, evaluation of those needs, and deployment of capital for assistance. As those details are confirmed, we will share publicly. Any donation you can make - however small or large - can make a significant impact on assisting restaurant community in this unusual time of need. We're so grateful to you, and we promise to return the generosity in the days ahead in our own way when we can.
